Austin Summerfest 2017
Crowne Plaza, Austin, Texas The Central Texas DX and Contest Club (CTDXCC) is proud to be the continuing sponsor of the DX and Contest Forum at Austin Summerfest. The 2017 Austin Summerfest is August 4th and 5th, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, 6121 North IH-35, Austin, Texas, 78744 (northeast corner of IH-35 and US290E). The DX and Contest Forum will be from 10 AM to noon on Saturday.

DX and Contest Forum Program

CTDXCC will have another excellent program this year:

CTDXCC members, led by Jim, N3BB, will offer advice and answer questions for both experienced and newcomers interested in Contesting (Radio-Sporting) and DXing. Two separate panel discussions will deal with many aspects of two of the most popular parts of ham radio, including remote operation trends for both, LOTW impact, impact of Internet spots, single-op compared with multi-op contesting, best practices for QRP, SO2R techniques for contesting, single-band vs. all-band focus, operating techniques for the modest antenna station, DXing at home compared with the DX end, and more for CW, SSB, and RTTY.

CTDXCC will do "A CW Pileup Contest" on Friday, August 4, from 6-8pm, and Saturday, August 5, from 8-10am at the Crowne Plaza Austin Hotel venue in the small room behind the restaurant. First Prize will be a Begali Key.
